    thats just a warning that using unofficial products may cause damage to your hardware. that is not a direct warning saying that flash kits will brick your system. in the past r4's with bad solder jobs bricked ds systems. the n5 flash kit has a power consumption issue on boot with the microsd slot that bricked the ds. contact issues during boot up can cause problems, etc, etc.

    doing what we do with these systems always brings a risk. if you aren't comfortable with that then stop using flash kits.

    Nintendo can not brick your sytem because you use the ak2i, nintendo can not brick your system because you use other flashcards.
